Week 9 Ravens @ Titans Preveiw

This may finally be the week when Titan fans see Marcus Mariota, DeMarco Murray, and Corey Davis on the field and all close to 100%. Coming out of the bye week the Titans offense is 13th in points, 18th in yards, 26th in pass yards, and 8th in rushing yards. That’s not going to get it done and we all know it. The Titans need more consistent play from the skill positions, meaning they need to stay healthy. That isn’t easy in the NFL.

The Ravens bring an interesting defense to Nashville. They are currently ranked second in the league against quarterbacks and wide receivers but 27th against running backs and 25th against tight ends. With Murray and tight end Delanie Walker, who is questionable, the Titans can exploit the Ravens defense.

The injury bug seems to have bitten everyone this year and the Baltimore Ravens are no exception. Quarterback Joe Flacco and wide receivers Jeremy Macklin and Mike Wallace are all listed as probable. Flacco and Wallace are both in concussion protocol and would be a big boost to the Ravens offense if they could play so that situation needs monitoring. The Titans defense needs to pressure Flacco. The defense is 31st in the league with only 11 sacks and 22nd in the league with 38 quarterback hits. Flacco has been inconsistent at best this year throwing for 2 touchdowns in one game and zero touchdowns in three games. His yardage high is 235 against the Steelers back on October 1st.

The Ravens will attack with Alex Collins and Javorius Allen out of the backfield and Macklin, Wallace and tight end Ben Watson. It isn’t known if running back Danny Woodhead will be active against Tennessee or not. The Ravens are 7th in the NFL in yards rushing and 10th in yards per attempt. If Woodhead can play it would be boost to this offense. Allen is the team’s leading receiver with 32 receptions on the year.  I have to believe that Woodhead would be even more productive in the Ravens offense. The Baltimore offense has to do a better job of holding on to the football. In three of their four losses, they’ve surrendered the football three times in each.
